Limited 180 gram vinyl LP pressing including digital download. This LP, which came after two previous volumes, presented further quintet sides by the group formed by Stan Getz with Bob Brookmeyer, pianist (and future Hollywood composer) John Williams, bassists Teddy Kotick or Bill Anthony, and drummer Frank Isola. Getz's working band of the period, the quintet was booked in the summer of 1953 to play at Zardi's nightclub on Hollywood Boulevard during seven uninterrupted weeks. The long engagement would expand the quintet's repertoire, which Norman Granz took advantage of during these sessions. Getz and John Williams would only work together during the period 1953-55. Getz and Bob Brookmeyer first recorded together in 1952. They would continue playing and recording together sporadically in different contexts throughout the 1950s, '60s and '70s. Getz and drummer Frank Isola first recorded together in 1952, when Getz' quintet included yet another ex-Parker member, pianist Duke Jordan, as well as Jimmy Raney, and bassist Bill Crow. Isola would remain with Getz until 1955, and after that they would never record together again.
